I have been constipated for two weeks. Recently, I have been seeing a bit of blood and white circles in my stool. I also have sharp pain in my belly?

In brief: Mucus discharge

Mucus discharge occurs in up to 50% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome, with or without pain.
Mucus may also be produced in response to partial obstruction, chronic constipation, rectal dysfunction, infection, & even from secretory villous tumors of the rectum. At the very least stool studies & probably a sigmoidoscopy should be considered, but a more extensive evaluation may be warranted.
